"Prosecutors: ”We are looking at a person or persons”"
"MÖLNDAL. Police are investigating three cases in which people in a retirement home were brought to hospital with very low blood sugar. One of them, a man, died."
"All three lived on the same title and is believed to have been medicine that they shouldn't have."
"– the Mere thought is so terrifying, that someone would go around to these vulnerable people and to do something so terrible, " says a woman whose mother lives in the home."
"In the course of a few days in may 2018 was brought two women to the hospital. They came from the same department in a retirement home in Mölndal outside Gothenburg. The women are believed to have received injections with rapid-acting insulin, usually given to patients with diabetes."
"– My doctors reacted to two cases with very low blood sugar. They saw the signs that the low blood sugar was caused by externally added insulin, as patients not treated with. Therefore, I contacted the police, " says Jerker Persson, senior physician at Sahlgrenska university hospital in Mölndal, sweden."
"being Investigated as homicide and attempted murder."
"just Over six months later, on January 21, 2019, received a man from the same department with very low blood sugar. He did not survive. "
"– Where we saw no signs of externally added insulin, but there are other medicines that lower blood sugar, " says Jerker Persson."
"All three are suspected to have received the medicine that they shouldn't have," notes prosecutor Stina Lindqvist. The cases are being investigated as a suspected murder and attempted murder."
" We have a person or persons that we are looking at, but we have not set up any reasonably suspected yet. We hope to reach there soon, " says Stina Lindqvist."
"You're working, inter alia, with the interrogation and control of medical records. Kammaråklagaren says that much work remains to be done."
" It is a fairly complicated investigation."
"Why suspect you of murder and attempted murder, instead of some form of negligence?"
"– Had it been in a case had been able to imagine it. But now, if it is in the three cases, it is unlikely that it would happen just the same title. That is why we have set the headings, but it can be changed during the course of the study. "said prosecutor Stina Lindqvist."
"”the Neighbors had to help the mother”"
"Aftonbladet has spoken with two people whose relatives live in the current home for the elderly in sweden. None of them had any knowledge of the cases before the news briserade in the weekend."
"– You have the whole picture yet, if it was in any barmhärtighetssyfte or out of pure malice. It is good that it has come to light, so they may take hold of what has happened, " says a woman."
"the Woman, whose mother lived at the home for the elderly for over five years, believes that the quality declined when a private company in the healthcare sector took over the property. "
"– It was the municipality that ran it first, then we were done. Then it got worse in many ways. Especially with the staff turnover, there were fewer educated and they were very few at night. A night fell the mother and we had to send in the neighbours to come and help her, " says the woman."
"the Inspection of health and social care, Ivo, found deficiencies in the handling of drugs during the period that the private health care company ran the home for the elderly."
"Since January, it is the municipality, which runs it again."
" We just hope that it will get better now. There are many employees there that are great, which I really like, says the woman and nods towards the building."
"the head of administration wanted to ”not worry”"
"Monica Holmgren is the director of nursing and care services administration in the town of Mölndal. She has known about the suspected cases, since they occurred."
" of Course, I think that it is regrettable and I do also have a concern, if it is the case that a person is behind these incidents. We do not know at the present time, it may the girl show, " says Monica Holmgren."
"When the first events occurred in the selected health care company to not go out with information, and neither has the municipality done."
"– We have not gone out with any information, in any direction, this is still just the incidents. We do not know if there is anyone who is behind and in this situation we have chosen not to inform, not to worry, " says Monica Holmgren."
"Because there is no defined suspect so have no staff nor taken out of service. The executive also says that she will await the results from the Rättsmedicinalverkets autopsy of man who died in January."
"in Order to avoid new incidents are handled insulin nowadays as controlled drugs on the property, counting in medicine, and nurses may delegate to nursing assistants to share out the insulin."
"– The company that ran the site last year took good measures directly. We have tightened the measures further, " says Monica Holmgren."
"It's so scary”"
"Aftonbladet hits another woman who is on the way in to the home for the elderly in Mölndal, sweden, to see his mother. She read about the criminal investigation in the media."
"– I shall not say that I fear for my mother's sake, I have järnkoll on her. But it is clear that you are worried and want information as soon as possible. And one can wonder that it has taken a very long time. Why was it here now? I had no idea, and I'm still here a couple of times a week, " says the woman."
"She has thought of the idea to move his mother from the home for the elderly, but come to the conclusion that it would not lead anywhere."
"– This is so scary, it is clear you wonder if it is the place to be. But on the other hand, would this person be able to work at any other point in the day. It will not be quiet until you get to the bottom of this, and finds out what and who is the cause."
